Sleek Makeup’s Jet Set

Sleek Makeup’s Jet Set

A brighter color - not quite what I was expecting, but attractive. I have to be careful how I use it, because some brights (like this one) can pretty quickly overwhelm my eye color, but it's a great accent shade. The Sleek eye dusts have good pigmentation, and when I use my regular primer they stay in place all day.

Despite the “charcoal” in the name, and the ashy brown shade, this color doesn't smoke out too well. (Not necessarily a bad thing, just…be advised.) It's a great slightly-elegant-ish color with tiny, scattered green and blue highlight-sparkles. It does apply a bit softer than it appears in the pot, but even though the color loses some heft, it's not super-light or even semitransparent.
